The past two Golden Globe awards ceremonies have been hosted by a snarky Ricky Gervais who ruffled a few feathers with his Hollywood put-downs and close-to-the-knuckle jokes.
But the presenting job has had a glamorous makeover, with funny women Tina Fey and Amy Poehler glittering in gold dresses in a new promo clip.The television stars gave viewers a taste of what to expect next January in the humorous promo, which was released, along with the nominations on Thursday.Fey, 42, looked stunning in a gold sequinned dress with plunging neckline, while 41-year-old Poehler wore a similarly glittering high necked gold gown.
‘I’m very excited to be hosting the Golden Globes awards show this year,’ declared Fey in a clipped ‘classic Hollywood’ accent.’Because it’s the biggest awards show/celebrity party in the whole of Hollywood,’ added a breathless Poehler.’In fact,’ added Fey. ‘We’re so excited, we’re going to speak in classic Hollywood voices for all our banter.’
‘Talking like this will never get old,’ said Poehler, before adding ruefully that in fact, it had.The funny pair are old friends who first met while working for improvisational theatre troupe Second City in Chicago before they found fame on Saturday Night Live.They have since appeared together in 2008 comedy film Baby Mama.
‘The unparalleled comedic timing of Tina and Amy will surely have viewers wanting to tune-in to see them in action,’ said Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Takla-O’Reilly, when she announced the news back in October. The actresses will also be competing or an award at the show, with Poehler nominated in the Best Comedy Actress category for Parks and Recreation, with Fey competing in the same category for 30 Rock. – Dailymail
